In the inaugural episode of The Deep Dive, host John Lettieri sits down for a wide-ranging discussion with Scott Winship, one of the country’s leading experts on economic mobility and inequality, who serves as Executive Director of the Congressional Joint Economic Committee. Scott and John discuss the latest research on social capital in the United States, the persistence of the “opportunity gap” between black and white children, and how place exerts a profound influence over a child’s life outcomes.
Scott Winship, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the United States Congress Joint Economic Committee. At JEC, he leads the Social Capital Project for Senator Mike Lee (R-UT). Winship is widely published and has worked previously at the Manhattan Institute, the Brookings Institution, and the Pew Charitable Trusts. Follow him on Twitter @swinshi.
